  • [01] Greek exports fall 15.5% in Nov.

    ‘he value of Greek exports fell by 15.5 percent in November, compared with the same month in 2007, the National Statistics Service said on Friday.

    [02] PPC: Power grid operating smoothly

    Public Power Corp. (PPC), Greece's electricity utility, on Friday categorically rejected press reports claiming alleged disruptions in power supply in the country, saying "there is absolutely no reason for concern regarding the country's power grid".

    Commenting on a series of reports alleging of very low lignite reserves, PPC said the Meliti power station was using lignite supplied by third parties and not from its own mines, while it acknowledged that due to adverse weather conditions prevailing in the country in recent weeks lignite reserves had fallen, but reassured the public that reserves would return to normal levels very soon.

    [03] SYRIZA calls for nat'l council on foreign policy meeting

    In a letter to Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) MP Yannis Banias called for an extraordinary meeting of the foreign policy national council. The recent alarming developments in the Aegean call for a substantive briefing and discussion, according to the letter, while the massacre of the Palestinian people makes imperative the exchange of views between the country's political powers. Meanwhile, SYRIZA-affiliated Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) President Alexis Tsipras held a meeting earlier with a delegation representing diplomatic personnel.
